about florida with 29 electoral votes, and north carolina with 15. you add those together to the base states that mitt romney has. that only makes 235 electoral votes. president obama with 303. that doesn't mean mitt romney cannot win. he's very close in some other states. in colorado, for example, in new hampshire, he -- but he's going to have to make up a lot of ground in a lot of places to get there and the last swing state polls we showed showed six. point lead in ohio. two-point lead for the president in florida. one-point lead in virginia. big hill for mitt romney to claim clitomorrow night. >>> let's go to the finance.yahoo.com poll. the aftermath from sandy. do you think the pace of the recovery will help or hurt either candidate? go to vote at finance.yahoo.com. josh, do you think at this point the voters especially in our north carolina of the woods will use this storm as an issue as they cast their ballots or not? >> it is certainly going to be a matter of consequence but the real important question here is turnout. how many voters are actually going to come out. what we've

the opportunity for a boost since the government rebuilt southern florida after hurricane andrew in 1992. a reconstruction so huge, it moved the country's entire gdp needle just when we needed it, after right a nasty recession. and now that we've assessed the damage, or we're trying to at least, i'll have to tell you one thing. i think this looks like a possible replay of that hugely bullish. right after a nastier recession. you couldn't tell that today to. ford with terrific numbers because they're connecting with the building materials industry. those stocks performed best today with the ones that took matters into their own hands. we spoke to queen harbors after it bought safety queen. to diversify away from the oil and gas business. queen harbors may have been up huge anyway, simply because, well, it's queens harbors. precisely what sandy ordered. buyers love the acquisition. $8.91. 18% gain for the good guys. tonight we're going to speak with two other companies that want to make you money. just in the last couple days. we'll hear from eaton. it will soon close on its acquisition of

quarter, we feel very good about. that's certainly true in california. it's true in florida. it's true in paris. >> bob, the last time we talked, you seemed passionate about the need to fix our debt as a country. i wonder what your take is on president obama winning re-election. does that change anything for the company, for the industry? in terms of this fiscal cliff, everybody is expecting taxes to go higher. we're not sure how high on dividends and capital gains. will that dictate your behavior in terms of disney's payout, your dividend? >> well, first of all, i think i was most passionate when we last talked about the change in the corporate tax rate where we are the highest in the world right now. i don't think that makes this country competitive. i think it's a real impediment to true growth. so i'm very passionate about addressing that, not only reducing the rate, but in order to do so, i think certain loopholes have to get closed as well in order to make this country far more competitive. i think that's very important. i've seen some very compelling statistics about what a 10%

swamped. >> you remember hurricane andrew which flattened homestead down in florida. there were parts of new jersey and long island that look like that. >> not nearly the size -- houses down there were $150,000 a piece. the homes that were destroyed up here were millions of dollars a piece. >> that's what i'm saying. it's much more money. >> the other difference is in new york there's not a lot of moral hazard that you worry about in the sense of people weren't building homes in the wrong places. >> a terrific comment. there had not been a storm there in decades and decades and decades. it's another thing in florida on the coast. there were counties i found along north carolina that have fema money on top of fema money from the prior storm on top of fema money. that's not the case in new york. >> three storms hit new york in 1954. all of them twice as big as the one that just hit three in one year. >> i don't want to give you a nodule but people are making a leap with global warming thing. it may be true. i don't think there's evidence of it. >> i tell you, it's our living in sin that

[laughter] it didn't always. the oil sands have been in the ground for millions of years, but for decades, prospectors lost millions of dollars trying to squeeze the oil out of the sand. it simply cost too much. t. boone pickens, the legendary texas oi
-47. look at the state of florida. one that mitt romney is counting on as a lynchpin of the base. 29 electoral votes. president obama up among likely voters 49-47. in ohio, the state most look at as the potential tipping point. president obama has a six-point lead. he's gone hard on the auto bailout and hitting mitt romney. that's a point of contention. because ohio has been such a tough nut for the romney campaign to crack, that's a reason they are making a late play into pennsylvania. it depends on turnout organization, especially the composition of the electorate. what portion of white voters versus hispanics. definitely a lower level of intensity and young people. barack obama dominates among young people. mitt romney among seniors who are more motivated to vote. how much will that carry the day? we'll find out tomorrow. >> if you're looking for an early tell tomorrow, if you could only look at one state early on, virginia. if it's decisive either way does that suggest the rest of the night collapses in that direction? >> almost in any of the battleground states other than ohio w

, the density of the area affected never happened before. when the storms hit florida, frankly they do hit areas and they hit them hard. so many people that live in the area, you have not had this. so it's really hard to know, carl, the 439 plus 78,000, doesn't seem like that much. i have seen estimates that claims could go up as high as 500,000 or higher. so that's something to look out for. how much drop you would expect and why we see it in philly and not in empire state, which arguably should have been more impacted than philly fed, of course you are, philly is down in that southern new jersey area that was hit by a lot of rain, that's possible. i honestly have to answer your question, carl, by saying i did not know what to expect, except that beyond noisy, i expected it to be negative. >> also double dose of big box retail earnings this morning, walmart and target both beating estimates on the top line, but walmart did -- patrick mckeeve, that neutral looks awfully pressure right now. what is your response to how they did? >> the sales were disappointing, they comped up 1.5%, walmart u.s. a
